In the first couple of trailer, the most noticeable thing was how Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson seemed to be in competition as to who could have the body that looked most like it was too muscled for a real human. However, the thing that will be distracting you is this one, is Efron going undercover in drag, and looking like he’s modelled himself on Audrey Hepburn.
The film itself is, of course, based on the hit 90s TV series. As you might expect being taken from show that’s known for being pretty cheesy, the film keeps it’s tongue firmly in its cheek. And yes, there is some slo-mo running in swimsuits. The movies follows ‘devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchanan (Johnson) as he butts heads with a brash new recruit (Efron).
